    (November 25, 1846-June 9, 1911)
    Terrorized Kansas saloons from 1900 to 1910

    She was arrested more than 30 times.
    She claimed she heard the voice of God.
    She described herself as 'a bulldog running along the feet of Jesus, barking at what he doesn't like.'
    She actually looked like a bulldog.
    She was a failed school teacher.
    She legally changed her name to Carry A. Nation, because that is what she thought she was doing.
    She was 6'0 and 175 pounds.
    She had hundreds of followers.
    She hated alcohol because her first husband drank himself to death.
    Because of Kansas' Prohibition laws, many of the saloons she attacked were actually illegal.
